Some parts stores actually carry the clamps. You are supposed to use a special tool to squeeze the clamp shut, it pushes down on the center while you squeeze the sides. If I put the original back on I'll just use a hose clamp that can be bought anywhere. It does the same thing it's just not as fancy looking and is removable. A lot of CV boots use those style clamps so people don't mess with them.
Glad to see that everything else went well.

Do you have a dual valve catch can, and if so how did you hook it up to the "T" valve with the hose sizes being different? I'm trying to find a nice plain and clean way to do it.

The biggest issue I had with the install was getting the breather canister positioned away from the pulley. I spent a good hour farting around with the elbow and 90 degree fitting making sure the canister was well away from the pulley. There's a little tilt to the canister but it doesn't appear any more excessive than what I saw in photos of some other installs. The rest of the installation didn't give me any problems.

I have an Elite catch can I transferred from previous Camaro so I didn't need to use the "T" valve.

The weather was so hot and humid this afternoon after I finished the install that I decided to wait until this evening when the temps were a little cooler to take a test drive. Unfortunately a band of thunderstorms came through around 7P and killed that idea. Hopefully the weather will be more cooperative in the morning.

The weather did cooperate this morning. Temps were in the upper 60's around 8am. Car does feel like is has a little more pull. And I love the sound of the supercharger under acceleration. I thought is was going to be a high pitched whirl but it's more like a whoosh sound. Very nice.

Here's a photo of my engine compartment with the Roto-fab intake. Photos from my iPhone in direct sunlight make it look like my car IOM but I swear it's victory red.

At WOT above 4k rpm, it's defiantly a high pitched sound like a whistle.
Very easy to hear with the top down, and I LOVE IT.

Roto-Fab Cold Air Intake Installation Video

I'm in the middle of installing mine right now (purchased from Tyler@JDP) and have run into a little snag. I'll attach a picture to illustrate what I'm talking about but basically the loom that you're supposed to move inboard of the A/C service port actually runs under/through the A/C line and is causing fitment issues with the box. I can't get the stud/grommet to engage because this is making it a really tight fit. Anyone else see this? This loom runs to the MAF sensor, throttle body and one more place.

Unfortunately, I've scraped up the shock tower trying to wiggle this damn thing into place before I noticed what was going on.

Edit: I ran the hose or loom or whatever it is on top of the radiator bracket and got the box in. It's a right fit.

Final question: how much clearance should there be between the air canister and the belt?

Glad you got it figured out. As for the breather canister; clearance is close, but you can gain a little more room by rotating the fitting a little bit so it sits at a slight angle.

Best regards,

I need help with Rotofab install on my ZL1. I've gone through all the instructions, as well as the online video. How am I supposed to re-install my MAF? Am I supposed to cut out the hole where the MAF is supposed to go in? If so, what are you using to cut through that hard plastic? Everything has been straight forward until this part. There is nothing in the instructions or the video that talks about how you are supposed to do this.

Thank you!

Unhappy

Well, after 4 1/2 hours of doing this install - it's finally finished. I had to go out and buy a dremel to cut out that hard plastic so I could get my MAF installed in there. It wasn't pretty, but it did the job. What a huge pain in the butt that was! I can't imagine this is normal and has to be some sort of weird manufacturing defect.
